Summary/Abstract: Long-term care for people in need (elderly, children, people with disabilities) is carried out in Romania under a fragmented, unclear and contradictory legislation. In addition, control bodies (and primarily the labor inspectorate) have so far shown little concern for identifying cases of undeclared work and, in general, for the protection of long-term home care workers. The paper presents the legal grounds in which this type of activity can be performed and presents aspects of the dysfunctionality of the current regulations, which are generally centered only on the needs of the beneficiaries, not including worker protection rules.
